New York Dolls "Lookin' Fine On Television"
In the early 70's, Rock photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya purchased a portable video recorder. In a period of three years, they shot over 40 hours of New York Dolls footage. This footage became the critically acclaimed documentary "All Dolled Up". For "Lookin' Fine On Television" more footage has been edited to create fifteen live music video-style clips.
These fifteen clips include footage from the Dolls' early shows in NYC at clubs such as Kenny's Castaways, and Max's Kansas City as well as their West Coast tour: Whisky-A-Go-Go, the Real Don Steele Show, Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco, and more.
All the fan favorites are here including ripping versions of "Personality Crisis," "Who Are the Mystery Girls?" "Babylon" and more. See the incredible early days of the band that influenced generations of punks and rockers.
Bob Gruen has photographed some of the most famous names in Rock and Roll including John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Rolling Stones, and most major rock acts from Muddy Waters to Green Day. He has just published a monograph of his 40 year career titled Rock Seen and has frequent gallery exhibits.
